Just some picts of the kids from this month -- it's hard to believe that at Mabel's age, Luke had already been on a 5000 mile road trip through parts of Canada & the US and we were just about to move to Guatemala! The farthest Mabel has been from home is the 80 miles to Spokane. She doesn't even have a passport yet {gasp}! How things change :)

A crystal-clear New Year

Oh my ... New Year's is already a long time past now, but these pictures are too pretty to skip. We had one of the prettiest days I've seen in Moscow yet. It made me feel hopeful about the year; that this one pretty day was somehow a promise that this year would have unexpected beauty in it.
